Medico Legal / Activities of Daily Living

The CHG team of medical professionals are highly experienced in providing expert, independent opinions relating to a person’s medical condition, functional capacity, ability to work and the person’s functioning at home.

The CHG inter-disciplinary workforce of health professionals can provide independent, expert assessments for use in legal proceedings arising in the areas of compensable medicine – particularly workers compensation and motor vehicle accidents (comprehensive third party insurance).

CHG will provide objective, evidence based assessments that will detail current capacity, limitations and the person’s ability to undertake activities of daily living. Experienced physiotherapists and occupational therapists will conduct the assessment – usually in the person’s home – to determine the level of functioning related to personal care, recreational and social activities.

During the Activities of Daily Living Assessment, the therapist will also educate the person on how to safely perform particular tasks and what can be done to increase functional abilityHTML through a graduated home activity program.

The therapist will also consider and make recommendations for any equipment or appliances that will assist with daily tasks, or whether housing modifications are necessary.

These assessments and the resultant reports can be used to commence or progress legal proceedings related to the person’s condition or disability.
